Val and Mike had one goal for their wedding. . . to have FUN and enjoy the day! With a ceremony at the Pinconning United Methodist Church and the reception at the Fraser Township Hall, the couple definitely accomplished their goal. My favorite part of the entire day was their 45 minute scheduled break at the Maple Leaf Golf course. It was fantastic to be able to take some time for the bridal party just to relax instead of having to rush right over to Bay City State Park for group photos. Apparently the Moscow Mule is the drink of the summer? The party went long into the night with Dj Storm keeping that dance floor packed!

Allison and Zack were married on June 6 at the Pere Marquette Depot in Bay City, MI (Which just happens to be one of my favorite summer ceremony locations)! Following the short ceremony, guests traveled over the bridge to Lumber Barons where the party got started with Hidalgo Entertainment. The evening wrapped up with a Chinese Lantern release over the water!

On the blog today I have for you Angelina and Jesse. Both the wedding ceremony and reception took place at Bay Valley Resort in Bay City, MI. For some reason, their wedding day seemed to fly by. Looking over my files, we definitely set some kind of record for most photographs taken within a short amount of time!
The ceremony took place to a full house on the second floor terrace with the reception taking up the entire ground floor. Following a fantastic dinner, guests were treated to music from Jedi Mind Trip. The dance floor was full all night long. Don’t believe me, just check out what I captured on the dance floor!

When I wake up the morning of a wedding I never know what type of day I have before me. No matter how much pre-planning is done, there is no telling what is going to happen until the first hour of shooting.
Amanda and Nick’s wedding was AWESOME! The minute I walked into the church I was instantly greeted by the smiling faces of the bridesmaids. These wonderful ladies welcomed me to the group by giving me a tour of the venue and offering to help me in anyway possible. The entire day continued like this. Everyone involved in Amanda and Nick’s wedding day was absolutely wonderful and it made the whole day fantastic. Even though we were short on time, the day was still amazing. It is a great feeling being able to spend my day photographing a wedding rather than having to coordinate it!
With a ceremony at St. Luke’s United Methodist Essexville and a reception at the Bay City Country Club, Amanda and Nick where officially married! All Night Affair started the party off and Paradise Sounds continued it into the night.

Today for you I have Jessica and Brady! These two were so much fun to work with and could write a novel long blog post. Unfortunately I am currently running 5 hours behind schedule and have a wedding to photograph in the morning. Hopefully this weekend I can revisit the blog and give it all the glory it deserves!

HELLO SUMMER! (Well, kinda)
Finally, wedding season is in full swing. That winter dragged on forever and ever and ever. Honestly, I think I spent more time shoveling snow this year than I have ever done in my life. There was one point in February when I was driving home from a consultation and the weather made me wonder why there was no Christmas music playing. . .
Alright, enough whining about the snow. Time to whine about the humidity. (Yum, Wine).
Today for all of you wonderful viewers I have Erica and Greg’s engagement session. We spent a lovely evening trying not to fall into the Tittabawassee river last week. If you are not from the area, Saginaw is a giant valley. Valley’s do not do too well during the rainy season, which we are currently in. I drove through the gorgeous Imerman park on Wednesday to find everything in perfect condition. I arrived to our Friday session to find half the park under water! It is absolutely amazing how quickly that river can rise.
Erica and Greg were troopers and into the park we went. Fortunately, the recent rain made the greenery extra green all throughout the park. Not a bad photo location was to be found. Once the initial awkwardness wore off, the couple warmed up nicely to the camera. Even Wednesday jumped into a few photos! Of course she was a bit preoccupied with all of the new scents that she was finding on this adventure. We emerged triumphant from the park and have these dazzling photos to show for it!
